Missouri Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer

Filing for bankruptcy can be a difficult decision to make. We understand that bankruptcy can be brought on by a variety of circumstances. Medical and hospital bills, credit card debt, or the loss of a job can all contribute to the need to file for bankruptcy.

Clients have many concerns when they come to us. What affect will bankruptcy have on their credit ratings? Can they keep their houses and cars? At Sotta & Briggs, an experienced personal bankruptcy attorney will help you understand how filing for Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy will affect you.

Don't listen to the rumors. You can still file for bankruptcy.

When the bankruptcy laws changed, many people believed that filing for bankruptcy wasn't possible. The truth is that most people who could file under the old laws will still be able to file under the new bankruptcy laws. Don't listen to what you have heard on the news or television. Your circumstances are unique and it is important that you discuss your situation with a Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcy lawyer. If you have any questions regarding filing for bankruptcy, contact our law offices regarding:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy - Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a way for those who cannot afford to continue making payments to discharge all of their debts.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy - If you feel that you can still pay off your debts, filing for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the right answer for you. Debt reorganization under Chapter 13 allows you to protect your property while continuing to make payments under a court ordered payment plan.
